Trying to get an existing qt project (no project file) to build
I downloaded a zip of an existing qt project from github and can not get it to build.
There is no project file but there is a makefile and I changed the filters in the new project dialog to show it, I can even click it in the project window and edit it. But if I try and build it there is an error "file makefile doesn't exist"
I can't figure out how to progress from here, any suggestions would be appreciated.
I haven't used qt before but I have used visual studio, running this on windows 8.
Found the .pro file, it was in a folder I hadn't checked.
When I double click it qt loads and then stops responding, also if I use open project from within qt it does the same. I have checked the .pro file and it contains a number of (correct) relative paths to the ui forms and a grc file.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Did you also check that there was no .pro.user file in your zip ? If there was, removed it and try again
Thanks, there is no pro.user file in the folder.
Can you post a link to that project ?
